When to Quit

As I mentioned earlier, my goal for today was 8 miles. As the hours passed, I decided I would actually run 5. So, around 1 in the afternoon (not a good time to run. Full sun does not help) I set out for my run. Right when I started I could tell this was not […]

Training Tuesday

Back to the marathon training schedule! Well, sort of. Technically, I should be running 5 miles, 3 days this week with a long run of 20 miles. I’m changing it slightly: 5 miles, 2 days this week, 8 miles 1 day, and 18 for the long run. I actually wanted to try the long run […]

Thai Sticky Rice

So, remember my post on cutting down on carbs? Well, with that in mind, we decided to make some thai sticky rice :). I told you I wasn’t completely cutting them out!

We received a package from one of Cliff’s friends a few days ago who is from Thailand. She sent us a bag of […]

I’m sure everyone knows the […]

Today’s Workout

What a boring title, I know. I couldn’t think of anything catchy so “today’s workout” it is! I wanted somewhat of an easy workout today since I did such a long run yesterday, so I decided to do some abs and arms. Arms are definitely my favorite part to work out, specifically my shoulders. There’s […]

Running Etiquette

As I mentioned before, today was my official long run day. I set out for 16 miles and actually completed all 16! Don’t get me wrong, I walked every now and then, but I finished the distance. I set my alarm for 7 and rolled out of bed at 7:30. Looking back, I probably should […]
